    The reports of the issue only come out of Brazil. But they are worried it may be more widespread, so they want people to uninstall it just to be safe.

    Thanks. I didn't check mine before I posted so I'll do that.

    Yea, saw that too - - the day AFTER it got installed, so I am exposed.

    I typically wait a week for things to get sorted out, but this time I got caught.

    My system is Win/7 Pro 64bit English and the exposure is 32bit Brazilian (aka Portuguese).

    I've uninstalled it from my W7 Home Premium.

    I had installed the update and did not see any side effects. However after researching a bit, I noticed that MS had pulled the update from their servers and recommended people uninstall the update. I decided to comply, to be on the safe side.

    Side note, during my search on the topic;
    • I found a submission by Kaspersky stating their anti-virus failed to start on several systems with the update installed.
    • A few more submissions from various locations stating specific apps failed to load. Windows Disk De-fragment being one of them.

    Thats odd, it took me longer to find it, than it did to remove it. Oh well.

    In unprecedented move, Microsoft releases downloadable repair CD for users with Win7 systems bricked by MS13-036/KB 2823324 patch

    If your machine comes up with blue screens of death (BSODs) after installing Microsoft's ill-fated KB 2823324/MS13-036 patch, Microsoft has just made available a download that will get your system going again. The CD image is only designed to bring back PCs that absolutely cannot be booted because of KB 2823324. It does not function as a general-purpose Windows 7 System Repair Disk.http://www.infoworld.com/t/microsof...s-repair-disk-botched-kb-2823324-patch-216786
